Taco Seasoning
  • 4 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  1. Combine all the above ingredients in a small bowl. Store in an airtight container. Use 2½ to 3 tablespoons for 1 pound of ground beef when making tacos.
  2. When making tacos I brown the ground beef with onion, cooking until no longer pink and cooked through.
  3. Drain any grease from your skillet and add the desired amount of taco seasoning.
  4. Don't add any water yet.
  5. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. This allows the spices to bloom and the flavors to really come through.
  6. Then I usually add about ½ cup water and simmer until evaporated. I don't use as much water as most recipes call for. I think using too much water dilutes the flavors of the seasoning.
